Actually, anyone who appears on Church Chat, SNL's talk-show-within-a-show, is fair game for her castigating flame. Wearing her old-fogey clothes, her voice screeching with sexual repression, cutting guests to the quick with her catchphrase "Well, isn't that special," the Church Lady has proved that her scorn is catholic. She's skewered the likes of Sean Penn, Si-gourney Weaver, Dennis Hopper and a faux Jim and Tammy this year, often scolding the women for disporting with their "breasts all askew" and the men for displaying their "bulbous groin regions." In the future, Carvey says he'd like to pit the Church Lady against Liz Taylor ("We like ourselves with our bosoms pressed together for the explicit view of the chestal area, don't we, Lizzie?"). Or Mick Jagger ("Well, we're going solo now, aren't we, and abandoning our friends? I guess Keith Richards can work at a 7-Eleven"). But it doesn't matter who enters the Church Lady's lair—she'll take on all comers and wind up dancing superior. As 1987 affirmed, the Church Lady is on a holy roll.
